Looking for a place to stay for your next trip doesn’t take a lot of effort nowadays if you know where to start searching. All you need to do is to visit the websites mentioned below, type in your destination, choose your travel dates and click search. Not all travel sites are created equal, so you may want to visit multiple sites before making your decision.

Here’s my list of my top travel search and booking sites to get you started:

Price Comparison Sites

An extremely fast and easy way to find places to stay is to visit price comparison sites that can show you a good list of accommodations complete with hotel information, room rates, and reviews in one search. These travel search sites collect data from hundreds of hotel booking sites to get the best prices. After seeing the results, you can easily compare for yourself and instantly book the one you like the most. Depending on the site, they compare hundreds of thousands of hotels, resorts, hostels, and guesthouses from all major travel destinations you can think of and even not-so-popular places.

Wego

I tend to use Wego a lot because they consistently display the widest selection of hotels and the cheapest prices. They sometimes also include special promo rates that are cheaper than other online sites. Their site is very easy to use and you can even filter the results by price range, location, or amenities that you prefer.

Hotels Combined

Another excellent price comparison site that has been around for quite some time. HotelsCombined is also very easy to use and provides options to filter the results to your liking. They sometimes include rates not shown in Wego, so checking both is worth a try.

Booking Sites

Agoda

Agoda is arguably the most popular hotel booking site in Asia and trusted by millions of travelers worldwide. They show one of the most complete list of hotels in many Asian destinations including the major cities and tourist destinations in the Philippines. Rates shown are very competitive, oftentimes matching or cheaper than walk-in rates.

Booking.com

Booking.com is very popular and has a wide selection of accommodations in Singapore, many Asian countries and most of Europe. The best part about Booking.com is that they give the option of paying during your actual stay at the hotel instead of paying online before your trip. They also offer free cancellation on most rooms.

Visit Booking.com

While these sites are great at making your search a lot easier, once you’ve narrowed down your choices, remember to visit the official hotel website or even ring them up to make sure you’re getting the best rates.
